Oh, now who didn’t see this comin’?

Washington Redsquirrels™®

… and, yeah, I know that’s probably not a Red Squirrel, but just go with the meme joke, m’kay?

Okay, maybe I’m missing something here [massages temples].
Seems that before this action, the term Redskins™ was limited in the number of people who could use it; but nowww, anybody can use it. Heck, everybody can use it.
So, how did [rubs beard] how did these Patent Office jackasses, like, you know … help the disparaged?

    “Foggy Bottom Guteaters” good for a fightin’ team.

    But I think Our Betters have something more …symbolic in mind.

    Washington Incumbents. Their fight song would contain “forever”.

    How about, The Washington Reds*ins or The Washington R*dskins or some variation thereof.

    Harry Reid doesn’t give a damn feather about the Red Skins name its just another thing to cause a rift with the citizens and take the attention away from the poor pole #s. It’s working– for some.

    Hey I’ve raised squirrels for a local wildlife rescue shelter.
    Little suckers can be tenacious, aggressive, vengeful and have sharp teeth and claws.
    (as well as calculating, playful, acrobatic and protective of family and territory)

    Wouldn’t be such a bad thing to name a team for them.

    Oh boy, a squirrel!

    …I know that’s probably not a Red Squirrel…

    Doug, how do you know it’s not a Red Squirrel? Maybe it was raised, mentored, and perhaps even sired by the same Red (and black) Communist Radical that did all these things for BHO.

    ^ Squirrels hide their cache, so they’re not redistributionists.

    (What? Nah, I added the species disclaimer ’cause I didn’t wanna get hammered by somebody who actually knew something about these critters on a detail I don’t care about.)

    For those of you who don’t like squirrels at your bird feeders, take heart. Put some nuts out on your deck, and the jays and ravens will get ‘em all before the squirrels get their pants on. Of course, it’s hard to root for jays and ravens under any circumstances, but there ya go …
